I agree with you on his work Szark. To bad he claims he can not teach. Kylumi would be a great help in this thread.

I agree. He would be a valuable asset at giving advise to new users.

I was wondering if anyone had any comments on mine from a few pages back. While it seemed decent to me, I have a feeling that there's something off and I can't place my finger on it.

Daz Studio 4, no postwork except signature

I'm sorry ZamuelNow. I do miss some stuff from time to time due to my illness and the fact my brain just goes on vacation from time to time.

Okay, the first thing is I do not think the background compliments the image. It's to light to fit the character IMHO.
Second your lighting is very uniform, not very much shadowing at all. I would expect to see at least some shadows from the glass frames.
Lastly I think the dress looks very good but you could adjust your Bump/Displacement settings for the skin. You should have a little detail in an image that is this close to the viewer.

Hope that helps.

EDIT: Opps... keep forgetting Quote will not do images any longer.

That would work IF I knew how you do that. I do not know how you get the URL of just the image.

I'm not a Mod, all I ever see is the thread addy.

You can do it by clicking on the <a> in your reply. It will ask you to put in a URL. Put in the URL of the image (which can be obtained by right clicking on the image and select view image detail) and then it will have you name it.

Okiey Dokiey, I'll try that next time, I'm used to having two browser tabs open for easy quoting so it should be easy to figure out.

Yeah just right click on the image and select View Image Info. Copy the URL from the section that says Location and that is what you paste as the URL.

Szark, thanks for the links and the info. I love the black and white portraits of kylumi, and I love the picture of yours. Very compaling !

Ahahaha.... I would have posted by now, but it's at 18 hours rendering and counting >.>

Some of the information I found talked about UE2, and since I've been using the Simple Soft freebies, I thought I'd try and build my own. I kept getting a 'mottled' kind of thing going on the skin, and found out that's because UE2 has it's own shading rate, like it has in the rendering tab... >.>

I think I might have turned it down too much. Haha...

But mostly it looks like it's taking aaaages because of a small bonzai I put in the scene? The character, background, everything else rendered in about five hours, but this little plant is making it take so much longer? Any idea why?

Dose it have modelled leaves, or are they driven by transmaps ? Transmaps can slow down renders in most apps, including my fav one, so not just a DS issue.

Haaru_Windwalker If you want to share your UE2 and Advanced Render settings we maybe able to help. But yes cho is right it is probably down to transmapped leaves.

I moved the key spotlight & adjusted the UberVolume cone to give a more even "halo" around the head.
